Williams became known as Chief Zee, the Redskins' unofficial mascot, during his more than three decades of supporting the team. He wore a Native American headdress, which made him a familiar sight at both RFK Stadium and FedEx Field. In later years, he rode around the field on a motorized scooter Redskins owner Dan Snyder gave him.

Originally from Oxon Hill, Md., Williams lived less than a half-hour from FedEx Field. The Washington Post published a profile of Williams in 2013, in which it reported Williams attended almost every home game since 1978; the only games he missed were due to funerals.
